With all the hoopla surrounding the new Camaro 1LE, let's look back at the original.
The story of the ZL1 Camaro, fitted with that rarest of the rare, all-aluminum 427 big-block V-8, is one that has often been told: How only 69 were made, how they exploited the GM option-ordering system, and how they've become the Camaro guy's ultimate Camaro.
Classic Car Overview
There is a group of you and you know who you are who look beyond the late 60s and 1970 Detroit muscle and find the 1980s era vehicles as the last true American Muscle cars. This 1987 IROC-Z represents the ultimate 1980s American automotive time capsule. Starting with the original window sticker, this Z28 is all stock, sans aftermarket wheels, and lowering springs. This third generation Camaro is often relegated to the bench as its older siblings take the spotlight. A departure from the traditional F-body staple, the third gen brought design modernity to Chevys entry level performance model. Still under the original owners care, this Z has been driven sparingly and features one of the best combos ever to grace a third gen - V8, 5-spd, T-tops, bright red paint and a leather interior. 1985 saw the introduction of the Camaro IROC-Z, an acronym for International Race of Champions Z28. The IROC-Z platform featured an upgraded suspension, larger diameter sway bars, Delco-Bilstein shocks, and the wonder bar, essentially a strut tower brace for the bottom of the car. The Z28 also featured a more aggressive front fascia, a ground-hugging front air dam, and body color ground-effects skirts with IROC-Z badging and striping. This Camaro features the LB9 305ci V8 paired to a 5-speed manual transmission. The 305ci V8 featured hydraulic roller lifters, updated cylinder heads, and revised valve cover design. Enjoying a red on red finish that would make even the quarterback jealous, this Z28 features a unique two-tone brown leather over camel interior. All interior amenities including power windows, mirrors, door locks, and rear hatch release are original and function beautifully. The factory heater and air-conditioning will keep you comfortable in four seasons, complemented by both front and rear window defroster. With only 32,968 miles, this pony car has remarkably seen only one owner since it left the factory. If you are of a mind for 1980s Chevy muscle, this beauty is ready for you.
